Drexel 66, Towson 52: The Tigers took a 43-40 lead with 9:24 to play but faded late in a home loss.

Towson (10-16, 6-8 CAA), which trailed by seven at halftime, used a 23-13 run to erase the Dragons' advantage. But Rachel Pearson drained a 3-pointer to tie the game and start a 7-0 run that gave Drexel (15-9, 9-4) a lead it would not relinquish.

Tigers senior forward LaTorri Hines-Allen led all scorers with 23 points and 12 rebounds, her 12th double double of the season.
